Found Words – St Teresa of Avila

“Cristo no tiene otro cuerpo
que el tuyo;
no tiene manos ni pies en la tierra,
excepto los tuyos.
Tuyos son los ojos a través de los cuales
El mira a este mundo con compasion.
Tuyas son las manos
con las que El bendice
a todo el mundo.”

“Christ has no body now on earth but yours,
no hands but yours,
no feet but yours,
yours are the eyes through which Christ’s compassion
is to look out to the earth,
yours are the feet by which He is to go about doing good
and yours are the hands by which He is to bless us now.”


– St Teresa of Avila
